We are pleased to contact you to carry out a short survey in order to receive feedback on the COVID-19 pandemic and its economic impact on African countries. The primary objective of this initiative is to assist African countries to best respond to the crisis and support businesses.
The United Nations Economic Commission for Africa (ECA) and International Economics Consulting Ltd teamed up in April and July 2020, in order to carry out a first and second survey and provide insights into the economic effects of the pandemic on economic activity and trade for businesses across Africa. The analysis and full report has been published in the April 2020 and July 2020 reports.
As we move into 2021 and practically living for almost one year with COVID-19, the team is proposing the third round of survey. This survey will help in shedding light on the policy responses and understanding how businesses are progressing during the pandemic.
The results, together with an in-depth analysis, will be published by both organisations.
